The Peoria Park District (PPD) will kick off a summer of active, healthy, and positive activities with a weekend of events taking place Friday, May 21st and Saturday, May 22nd.

On Friday, May 21, PPD will host Streets Belong to Me, a long-running event at Proctor Recreation Center that provides an opportunity for youth, families, and adults to get together around play, entertainment, and food. As part of the festivities, youth will be asked to share how they would like to improve their community and make a commitment to nonviolence throughout the summer. Visitors to Streets Belong to Me will be able to enjoy food from local vendors, play games across Proctor’s campus of recreational facilities, and listen to music and speakers.

Streets Belong to Me will also serve as the opening ceremony for a City-Wide 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament that will be held the following day, Saturday, May 22nd.

The weekend of events including Streets Belong to Me and the City-Wide 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament are intended to not only provide positive and healthy activities for youth and their families, but they will also introduce visitors and the greater community to events, sports leagues, fitness programs, and educational programming that PPD will be providing all summer long. As our parks and facilities carefully and intentionally reimagine our role during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we look forward to adding healthy vibrant options that can help make playing in Peoria one of the best parts of the summer!

Don’t miss your chance to be a part of the Streets Belong to Me – HoopFest, a 3 on 3 basketball tournament for ages 9-14 years old. Learn more here!
